  • British Royal Navy Boarding Cutlass - 1804 Pattern

    1 Review(s)

    This pattern of sword was introduced during the Napoleonic Wars and saw service at the famous Battle of Trafalgar. Previous cutlasses shared a similar figure 8 hilt design but featured horn or leather grips that deteriorated quickly when exposed to sea water and changes in temperature. The introduction of an iron grip greatly extended the serviceable life of this sword. The hilts were traditionally painted or japanned to stop them from rusting. The blade has been forged from AISI 1065 High Carbon Steel and has been well tempered. It is housed in a leather covered wooden scabbard.
